In honor of summer’s unofficial end (Happy labor day!) I thought I’d share a cover for the Saturday Evening Post that never ended up seeing the light of day. It was just before memorial day and I was incredibly excited to follow in the footsteps of some of my illustration heroes.

Has medicine become too impersonal? An interesting article to illustrate for The Penn Gazette recently. As medicine has grown and expanded so have the practices that come with it. A reflection on these changes as seen through the eyes of a second generation doctor reflecting on his father’s experience– one of an overweening paternalism. This personal and “doctor knows best” approach is considered unacceptable these days.

Some alternative sketches as well. Medical cross ball gag!? Maybe next time.
